The X-bow GT4 is just over $181k. I'd guess in the $200k+ range easily.

WOW! That thing is impressive!

Am I the only one that thinks 600Hp and 2,200lbs is going to be way under powered for a "super car?"

Yes.

Ferrari 458 - 1565kg
Lambo Aventador - 1625kg
Porsche GT3RS - 1430kg
Audi R8 - 1645kg
Bugatti Veyron - 1888kg

times by 2.2 to get lbs.

Not much to say to Vitards.

Pretty pricey, I'm intrigued to see how it performs

Imagine 600 HP in a Miata then shave 150lbs off it.

600hp in 2200lb car is mental. Think CR500 in shifter cart.

2200 pounds = 997.9 kilograms

Plus it is not only about acceleration.

Turning and braking will improve as well.

When i was a business student, i have been working with an engineer student association that had a car similar to a "radical". It was 450 kg for 200hp. In term of lap times it was faster than a 911 at Magny Cours (f1 track at that time).

KTM made a really great car. As JS7 would say, while driving it, you can put "you can't touch this" wink

Track only or street legal? I'm intrigued. Not that I could ever afford one, mind you...

Braaapin' aint easy.

But can you still change the air filter with no tools?

Not street legal. 'gentlemen driver' track-day car. Ready To Race out of the crate. Audi powerplant.

Maybe KTM is hooking Ryan up with one of these to ditch Honda?
That's a nasty monster!

Ferrari 458 - 1565kg (power to weight 1.6)
Lambo Aventador - 1625kg (2.1)
Porsche GT3RS - 1430kg (1.7)
Audi R8 - 1645kg (1.7)
Bugatti Veyron - 1888kg (2.9)

KTM 2.7

This car will be quite fast at 600hp...its power to weight is close to the Bugatti's. It still looks like it needs to have in the 1000hp range.

A dirt midget weighs 850lbs and makes 400hp with a direct drive transmission consisting of only one year. A 410 sprint car weighs 1200lbs with 900hp. That’s why sprint cars and midgets are second to only motocross as the most entertaining racing to watch. Like watching fighter jets in a gymnasium
